Some leisure venues to reopen

September 8, 2020

In view of the latest COVID-19 situation, the Leisure & Cultural Services Department (LCSD) announced today that some of its venues will be reopened this month.


Some of the leisure venues will be reopened in phases from September 11, while some museums, performance venues and public libraries will reopen gradually from September 14.


For cultural venues, LCSD museums except the Science Museum and Space Museum will partially reopen exhibition facilities on September 14, with special opening hours from 10am to 5pm daily (except on the regular closing day) to be implemented for all venues, including the Film Archive box office.


All museums will apply visitor quotas, with the Museum of Art, Heritage Museum and Museum of History applying visits by sessions to limit people flow.


On September 14, major facilities of the LCSD's performance venues such as concert halls, theatres, auditoriums, cultural activities halls and arenas will open for hirers' rehearsal use and performances or activities without live audiences.


City Hall and Queen Elizabeth Stadium, currently serving as community testing centres, will be reopened on September 17 after the completion of the Universal Community Testing Programme and thorough cleaning and sterilisation.


The LCSD's performance venues are expected to be opened for performances or activities with live audiences from October 1 onwards with special seating arrangements. The number of audience members will be limited to half of the original capacity.


Central Library, six other major public libraries and 31 district libraries will be reopened on September 17 and will implement special opening hours. Their students' study rooms will resume service on the same day.


All Music Office music centres will resume counter services on September 17.
